I'd like to thank everyone who made it out to this year's edition of the DC Fetish Ball. I honestly feel this was the best event we've ever produced & I couldn't be more happy w/ the night. The energy of the crowd was amazing, the fashion & entertainment were off the chart, & the feedback has been incredible. In the end, we did hit sell-out capacity & rolled well into the morning hours.


I'd also like to thank my amazing team who bring the magic to make it all happen. They are truly the heart & soul that gives it life. It is indeed a true honor to host such an incredible affair & I am forever blessed by such an incredible group who stand in support.


We're working to get caught up on photos & will have full galleries out in a reasonable time (for both this year & past events yet posted).


Until then, The Metro has a number of new projects in the works so please keep an eye out.


Thank you for your support, & may the coming season find you healthy, happy, & prosperous in all you hope to be.
